just because it's not recorded it doesn't mean its wasted
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
morning everybody. i'm still struggling with an intro here. maybe a sparkdate like in star trek. gotta release the inner geek every now and then
Steve's log, sparkdate 52213.
So the theme is just because it's not recorded doesn't mean its wasted. this sort of covers all ground. I went for my run/walk this morning and did 3000 steps. awesome. great. hooray for me. but i found out i left my fitbit (sorta like a hi-tech pedometer) at home. boo!!! stupid me. so instead of having almost 6.000 of my 10,000 steps in at 10 in the morning i'm sitting at 3,000. plus the 6 flights of stairs i did. not recorded. but does it mean the effort was wasted. nope. still feeling good about the morning. and yes I still need to do my squats and planks.
So the question is, does everything good that you do have to be recorded or recognized to make it meaningful. I'm a Texan. born and raised, proud of it. Haven't really lived there since 79. Still tell people all about Texas. part of that is the way I was raised. Please, yes sir, no sir, yes ma'am, no ma'am. I'm all about manners. I still open doors for people, someone asks me a question or stops to talk I'll give them my time and no be impatient. but do i do this so they'll say thank you, or compliment me. nope. nice when they but don't get upset when they don't. I do it cause it's the right thing to do. and i know that my efforts are not wasted even if they aren't recognized. let's face it, in today's day and age manners are dying out as people become more focused on themselves and their electronic devices.
as long as you know what you're doing is right, you need no recognition. Does a parent need a thank you for cleaning up their kids scraped knee. Do you need a thanks from your boss for doing the daily report correctly. feel good about it. Know you did what was right, or that you did your best. my fitbit is 3000 steps shy. am I bummed. Yep. Does it ruin my day. nope. still feeling good though cause i know my efforts weren't wasted. besides, now I'm gonna have to go do another 3000 steps. no harm in that, only burnt calories and pounds lost.
it's all water over the bridge or under the dam now (or wherever water goes). just gotta remember to double check next time i'm headed out.
y'all have a good day. thanks for letting me ramble. Mr. Scott, 1 to beam up
